Bauman MSTU to organise workshops for children in Brussels
On 5–7 March, Matrjoshka early development and art school in Izegem and the Brussels school of the Embassy of the Russian Deferation in Belgium will host fun and educational workshops for children organised by Inginirium BMSTU as part of the international series of events New Digital Technologies at School. The events are supported by Rossotrudnichestvo and its branch in Belgium, the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Brussels.
At a workshop dedicated to the International Women’s Day, junior school children will learn about what 3D pens are made of and how they work and will create a flower for their mothers using additive technologies. No theory, just practice. Children will be working individually or in teams. With Bauman MSTU professors supervising the work, every child will be able to complete the task and give their mother a unique gift.
For students of grades 6–11, Inginirium is organising a virtual lab workshop. Children will take part in activities involving composites and will study them using VR. It is an innovative educational technology that goes far beyond the conventional school education.
Children will learn how composites are made using vacuum infusion and in a practical part of the workshop they will build an airplane wing in VR. Thanks to this practical format, the participants will learn about production technologies which they would have never be able to learn about in a regular class.
Inginirium BMSTU will also present its online Young Engineer course for students and teachers. The Teacher’s Module will help teachers learn which extracurriculum activities can be performed at school and how can they be organised. The Young Engineer module for school children will help them get a general understanding of the entire process, from an idea to its implementation.
Inginirium BMSTU is a division of Bauman State Technical University established in 2017 by the Composites of Russia engineering centre with the aim to develop vocational education and scientific and technological creativity among school children through innovative technologies and unique programmes.
